foreign policy record. which is worse? >> i tell you one thing, i think boehner has his own internal problems and that he shouldn't run out there and get in the president's way because in doing that he's getting in the american people's way. i think it's time that people want to see us go above party and think in terms of our country. i think they're exhausted at the partisan politics and now is the time to rembuild america and moe forward. >> i thought it was speaker bain mother didn't have the guts to do a grand bargain deal with the president because he was frightened of eric cantor in 2011. now he's saying it's the president who doesn't have the guts. i mean, this is total revisionism, isn't it? >> well, you can see that boehner wants everyone to respond to the president, the tea party, the republican party. if there was a moderate part of the republican party, i guess there will be a chance to respond, too. i don't really think that boehner is speaking for the american people or the republicans for that matter. i think that he is trying to keep these primaries -- tea party prima
and unemployment, he is completely wrong or during the hearings when he was talking about foreign policy. he sounded like he had no idea how these things actually work even though the words sounded very lovely all mixed together like that. >> rick, i think part of that maybe perhaps is that you can't actually tie yourself to specific policy in the current republican party. i mean, the thing about -- the difference between barack obama and hillary clinton is that they really weren't that far apart in terms of actual policy. there were a few measurable differences that were -- a lot of hay was made out of them, but fundamentally it wasn't that the democratic party was going through the same sort of, you know, analysis on the couch that the republican party is. >> the point is the strategy on how each one of them sort of had this crescendo in their popularity. it wasn't -- i'm not speaking to the two, but when hillary was first in the senate, she was very careful and methodical about how she rolled herself out. same thing with barack obama. knew that he came in as a big star, but knew that he n
is to the left of the obama administration's foreign policy agenda. was on the fringe of the senate. you are talking about a person whose voting record shows softness on iran and and antagonism on israel beyond belief. the fact that they wanted to cloture vote thursday was unreasonable. we voted senator kerry out in the same day because there was no don't veronica moser i have. controversy. we offered to hold the vote until after the break. that wasn't good enough. they wanted to force this issue. so i'm glad that we have got more time to look and i'm glad he answered my question about a very disturbing comment he allegedly made. so i think we doing our job to scrutinize i think one of the most unqualified radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> chris: well, let me ask you a question about that. if he is so radical and unqualified if you get the information you are seeking on him and on benghazi and we will get to that in a moment, why wouldn't you still continue to try to block him? >> well, because i do believe the president has great deference. can we do bette
of the obama administration's foreign policy agenda. on the fringe of the senate. you are talking about a person whose voting record shows softness on iran and antagonism toward israel beyond belief. he'd be the most antagonistic senator toward the state of israel in history, so the fact that we reported in -- tuesday, wanted a cloture vote thursday was unreasonable and we voted senator kerry on the same day because there was no controversy and offer to the white house to hold the vote until after the break, and, if nothing new came out we'd vote for cloture, senator john mccain and myself, but that wasn't good enough and they wanted to force the issue so i'm glad that we have got more time to look and i'm glad he answered my question, about a very disturbing comment he allegedly made. so i think we're doing our job to scrutinize, i think, one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> chris: well, let me ask you a question about that. if he is so radical and unqualified, if you get the information you are seeking on him, and on benghazi, w
, this is 2016, lining it up, foreign policy experience, sitting down with bb, the whole thing. >> well, it's true. and there are a number of boxes that one has to check if they're going to head in that direction. and i might note, on the democratic side of the aisle, here's the former secretary of state now going off on a limited speaking tour. so it seems perhaps that they're at logger heads, and time will tell. >> it's an interesting time, though. but a lot of press from marco rubio this weekend. that's for sure. thanks for joining me. >>> president obama is expected to go all-in to help elect house democrats come 2014. politico describing the president's early commitments as, quote, unprecedented and transformational. coming up, more on the democrats' possible plan to retake the house and what republicans may be doing to make sure they stay in control. >>> plus -- >> i could not believe that he would say something like that. and to a baby. or about a baby. and then to hit him was just -- i -- i felt like i was in another world. i was shaking. >> have you heard about this story? that's t
military. true libertarian would say protect the borders don't have any foreign policy at all. that is tough to win anytime soon. i'm evolving on something. i've listened to what is important. making the bigger tent. making sure the republican party says, you know, more people -- >> bob: are you coming out for prostitution? >> eric: no. i'm coming out for chris christie. i'm back on chris christie again. >> dana: what? >> eric: we need someone with personality. >> greg: we said big tent. not big pants. >> eric: i like that he says what is on his mind and don't worry about the issues that may be a problem to carson and maybe rand paul. >> bob: i think he would be a stronger candidate than rubio. certainly a general election. >> greg: i want to get dana in this. do you have anything intelligent to add to this? >> dana: people reject calling themselveses a republican. they don't want to call themselves democrat or say conservative or liberal. there are appealing characteristics with a libertarian to speak to people how they feel about themselves so people take another look at it.
because he was first: wae wa came in and didn't know what foreign policy he should be. should he be doing business with britain? he didn't know how to organize government. that's why washington usually follows lincoln as number two. >> now, even republicans give president obama credit for being a great communicator. >> yeah, and i particularly think that last -- the second inaugural barack obama is going to be quite famous. >> and also on the state of the union address. this last one was very well written. some day, somebody could do a book on the speeches of barack obama. >> no, w, if you look at a comparison, a tale of two presidents, you compare the president and his predecessor. president obama is ending two wars. president bush started two wars. president obama got bin laden, bush lost bin laden. president obama got 63,000 private jobs, president bush lost 63,000 jobs. so if you compare him to his predecessor, yes, a lot of people think he is well on his way to being on a list of great presidents. >> obama care is in mid course. it's going to be a huge accomplishment. and i think pre
at that press podium the first time chuck hagel opines about the president's foreign policy and their disagreements on it. >> i can tell you there were a lot of reporters that were answering to be on this trip to brussels. >> the reasons that are being shown to hold up this nomination, it's not about afghanistan, it's not about a draw john -- >> that's not true. >> in all fairness, what you just mentioned very parochial reasons by the republican party to make this into a dance because chuck hagel didn't like john mccain -- >> there are policy issues here, let's not forget. they did talk about his refusal to denounce hesbola as a terrorist organization. those are legitimate policy concerns which call into question his ability to lead the defense department. >> i want to move into another topic. one of your former boss be, mr. rove. it seems as if republicans are acting what's in their own interest, whether they like the rove project or don't like the rove project. if this works, this looks like this is going to be a very ugly public process in the short-term. is that fair? >>
, she was talking about war, i don't think we will hear a lot about foreign policy tonight. we will hear about the president trying to and pull troops out of afghanistan. and we will probably hear about north korea, since that happened today. that might change things a little. by peter will be a good number of things that he will not mention, which is interesting. guest: i have never observed a pattern of wars beginning in conjunction with state of the union addresses. one thing i will watch for this evening is the congressional black caucus, a collection of black members of congress, met recently with valerie jarrett on the hill. she's one of the president's top advisers, to discuss the state of the union to some extent. the question i have is whether he is going to address black unemployment specifically and things that will help bring that number down. i think that is what the congressional black caucus wants, but i don't know if that is when he's going to do. host: host: kumar worked in florida and washington. jonathan strong has some experience at "roll call." here reported on envir
issues, senior posts, foreign policy, and the republican party's reaction has been to spaz out, and it makes them look bad. >> speaking of spazing out, we have to leave it there. thank you, ari, nia, sam, and carrie. that's all for "now." see you tomorrow when i'm joined by harold ford jr., cnbc's andrew ross sorkin, ryan grim, heather mcgehee, and actress and activist kristen davis. until then, you can find us at facebook.com/now with alex. andrea mitchell reports is next. it's tax refund time and wesley & ashley are looking for a brand new smartphone. let's go. we've got a samsung galaxy sii on t-mobile monthly4g for only $299 with no annual contract. nice!

business is our business. adt. always there. jenna: welcome back, everyone. it's a foreign policy flashback if you will with new concerns today over iran and north korea, two countries singled out by president george w. bush nor than a decade ago during his state of the union address. remember this? >> north korea has a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction while starving its citizens. iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror while an unelected few reexpress the iranian's people's' hope for freedom. iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward america and support terror. states like these and these terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil arming to threaten the peace of the world. jenna: well two charter members of the axis of evil iran and north korea both in the spotlight at this year's state of the union. take a listen. >> our challenges don't end with al-qaida. america will continue to lead the effort to prevent the spread of the world's most dangerous weapons. the regime in north korea must know they will only achieve security and prosperity
more. foreign policy, it is 51% to 37%. theresa, nevada. caller: regarding president obama using executive orders to go around the republicans in the house, i am all for it. i am aware that this is a two- party democracy and we need republicans to be reasonable working party, but they have not been. the president has no choice but to go around them. john boehner has walked away. i am frustrated and the country is frustrated, other democrats are frustrated and scared. i am scared of the things they're willing to do to our country. he is doing what he has to do. i am all for his proposals, all for clean energy and comprehensive immigration, i am for gun legislation. i am for all of them. i am center-left, that is progressive. i think the country is definitely going progressive. i do not understand where the republicans want to obstruct and go with their small mindedness and small government proposals that they think that they can push through on the american people that i do not think are very popular. host: we have a different opinion from twitter. host: david wright's in on twitt
the american foreign policy was conducted in the middle east and i don't think they indicate some kind of unsuitability to be secretary of defense. i think he would have been is wiser to state it as he did on other occasions saying he could have good relations with israel and at the same time good relations with other countries but stay true and look out for america's interests first. >> reporter: ajyan blogged about the comments at the time but despite he supports hagel's nomination. bill: what is the reaction we're getting on capitol hill? >> reporter: senator lindsey graham opposes hagel's nomination. he heard about the comments and wrote a letter to hagel on "fox news sunday" yesterday. hagel responded but he does not remember making the remarks but he now disavows them. gram has concerns about that and other comments. >> if the second statement were true he said that the secretary of state's office under the control of israeli foreign ministers. those two together would show an edge and view of the israeli-u.s. relationship way out of the mainstream. >> reporter: graham said he wi
as the foreign ministers meet at this nato gathering in brussels, and as he is the guy who is going to be implementing the president's policies on afghanistan in particular, their frustration is he won't be part of the conversation. >> frustrating and embarrassing. peter alexander, thank you so much. >>> gun violence remains near the top of the president agenda and not just because of the massacre of innocent children and sandy hook but also the daily routine of shootings across the nation. something the president made reference to in his speech on friday in chicago. >> there was something profound and unique ly heartbreaking and tragic obviously about a group of 6-year-olds being killed, but last year there were 443 murders with a firearm on the streets of this city, and 65 of those victims were 18 and under. so that's the equivalent of a newtown every four months. >> and there was a tragic koda to friday's speech. 18-year-old janay mcfarlane whose sister was present as the president spoke was killed within hours of his address. mcfarlane had given birth to her baby just four yeamo
the world, senate foreign relations committee. chuck hagel, enlisted man veteran. >> pulled his brother out of a burning vehicle, leaving skardz to his body. these people are not, you know, light-weights. disagree with them on policy basis or whatever you want to say but they are not light-weights. chuck hagel, again, we talked about him a few minutes ago stand-up guy, john kerry, former nominee of his party to be president of the united states. these are not new people or lightweights. but they are not neocohs either. jake calling from eureka,cal. >> i think keeping them on the public airways will ensure the republican parties they are not the best face of the republican party. >> on the domestic side, they are trying to find this new generation, better faces, paul ryans and marco rub yes, sir talking about tupak apparently on interviews now. don't go away. don't go away. i want to hold on because we have something special coming your way a $50 gift certificate for pro-flowers you can use for this valentine's day and the rest of you type in press, you
